Speaking of old Dead videos, film snippets, .. have you ever wondered who's who in some of those things?
I found this montage from Sunshine Daydream identifying various folks wonderful. There's all the usual suspects, band members, etc., but this thing from Veneta in August of 1972 gets way down the food chain to various Pranksters, film crew members, sound and recording engineers, stage builders, on and on. Bear was even there.

You aren't kidding; I almost thought I'd see some old friends from the next few yrs at Winterland...that was the DEAD of my era. By the end (82), they all looked quite a bit different. Hmm, some were even dead.

Ahem.

:(

Pretty evocative of that era, eh? So amazing.
They went a little light on the women in the scene, except for Betty Cantor. Coulda fleshed out that end of things more imo. And yes, alas, Pole Dude was not among the identified. That mystery will live to see another day, still unsolved.
And how anybody could assess the size of that crowd as '20,000' is beyond me. But really loved it.

Edit:
I want that vintage t-shirt Big Steve is modeling @ 1:10. Charlie Barecca @ 3:36 went on to become the longtime sound/recording guy for heavy metal legends Twisted Sister. The band members came to think of him over time as 'the Sixth Sister.'
Mike Hagen and Bobby Miller were involved in the 2018 documentary 'Animal House of Blues, 33 and 1/3 edition,' about a small Oregon town connected with the origins of the movie Animal House, and the Blues Brothers.
Miller and Bobby Steinbrecher shown @ 3:06 are pictured here as well in 1969:

Nice to put a face to a name.
I see the old Sunshine Daydream video concert is no longer on Utube.I guess soon after the official release.
I always liked the beginning when the mean banker comes to foreclose, so it's the old "Lets 'Put On a Show We Go"
So it is no longer free like the new snippets may be.
It is like the Zevon line having to pay for what was already "mine", time out of mind

He reminded me of the mean guy from Laurel and Hardy movie, Babes in Toyland, without the hair and mustache.
I don't know
